Haas Grotesk - Helvetica Prints
Posters available for sale

In summer 2007 I did a short work placement in Zürich and had the opportunity to play with some lead type. As it was the 50th birthday of Helvetica and I was in its home country I thought it would be only fair to celebrate it, so I designed and printed this poster to illustrate a small but important change in the typefaces development.

With support from Alex, Valeria & Diego / Bonbon, Rahel, Esther, Rebecca and Roger I produced a series of A3 poster displaying upper and lower case 72pt. Halbfett Haas Grotesk in one colour and upper and lower case 72pt. Halbfett Helvetica in another.

I printed and numbered 100 posters in various colours. You can see the colours and photos of the printing stages here.
